THe CHallenge is... Make 2 one foot squares 8 feet apart. Start with the heli in one square, lift off into the air and land with both skids inside the second square with the heli in a stationary position. Repeat this process three more times for a total of four take offs and landings. The winner will be the person whom completes this challenge in the shortest amount of time. The clock starts when the skids leave the ground for the first time and time ends when the skids land for the last time. Landing consitutes both skids inside the box and stationary, you do not have to spool down the heli, it can be a static landing.

I would like to open this challenge on three levels.

First category: EVERYONE, any heli, any country(lol).
Second category: Rookies with training gear.
Third category: HBK2 and BeltCP owners.

If anything needs to be clarified, post questions here.

Once again video evidence needs to be posted. Given the lack of entries on the last challenge I will let this one run through two weekends. The challenge ends on March 16th at 9pm Central Standard time. Good luck gentlemen, the clock is now ticking.

Ooooh yeah I can use my Mini!!!

This sounds fairly easy but just like the 1st challenge, doing it will definitely be harder than it seems at first thought. I can't wait for some windless days to try it.

Oh and TripB, you have to enter this one. Since there is not so much actual judging and rather timing, you can enter without worry

I was thinking that having the squares 8 feet apart would still allow for indoor flying, like maybe in the garage.

Addendum:

You can only use ccpm heli's on this challenge, NO Co-ax's.
I left that first category a little too open.

Fender: That is why there is the third category, basically just esky helis

I think he should get extra points for chasing the pads when trying to land... it's harder to hit a moving target....
